I use to be a hoarder, I had a great job, money left over at the end of the month and when the recession hit in 2008, my life changed.  I was being challenged in jobs, careers, and enrolling in college.  Now that it is 2018 I will have to post about my true story.

    1. I will have t have a page or tab on that because I went from having owned a business for 12 years, closed in 2007, went back to college, struggling to keep working and finding a job. Being homeless, and learning that material things mean zero to me! I can fit my entire life in my car. That is a great topic to write about. Hugs Jackie Paulson
